Unable to Access Exchange Mail

Hello,

We just completed an exchange server 2003 installation and cannot log into the server.  When going to \\servername\exchange via Internet Explorer, the authentication window pops up.  After entering the correct user name and password information, the authentication window pops up again and again and then we receive an "Error.  Access is denied." message...

I think it is a problem with the server not communicating readily with the PDC...

???

Thanks.

are you talking about Outlook web access?

Yes.  I can access OWA from the PDC, but cannot actually do anything (ie. send a message).  I also have event ID 8270 in the app event log.

did you run forest and domain prep before the installation?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

First thing to check with any OWA related problems is authentication on the virtual directories.

Use IIS manager to check the following:
/exchange
/exchweb
/public
/exadmin

All should be basic and integrated ONLY.
In addition, /exchweb should also have anonymous access. No others should have anonymous.

If that doesn't fix it, can you post the complete error 8270 log please? The ID alone is useless.

The Exchange server cannot see the domain controller.
Presuming that you have checked the DNS settings, you need to dig further.

Install the support tools from the Windows setup disk. The two tools you need are netdiag and DCdiag. Run both of these and see what errors are being generated.
